drabble request - Anonymous: Ok, you can’t post that photo of SMarch and not give us a drabble about it! Lol. How about a drabble on Cabenson snapchatting each other naughty things, and one of their colleagues grabs Alex or Liv’s phone by mistake, just as a chat comes in. Lol. Like Fin taked Liv’s phone, or Judge Donnelly accidentally gtabs Alex’s phone, or both. ;) lol. (I choose to have this with Nick instead of Fin, mostly because I don’t write Nick enough lol)

She was no longer a little girl, and she wasn’t a teenager in love with a ghost. She was an adult, an Assistant District Attorney, and emotions had no place in her life anymore.
Olivia had no idea what she had hoped to accomplish by halting Alex’s retreat. And now in the face of a very important crossroads, she felt trapped. If she didn’t say the right thing, her childhood friend was going to walk away thinking she didn’t care anymore, or didn’t remember. But what could she say in this situation to make things any better? “I’m hungry.” Okay, so it was lacking.
